Sanibel Lighthouse, pre-Ian

Hello, friends. I'm here with another update before taking a blogging break. As you all know, the devastation on Sanibel Island following Hurricane Ian is staggering. Our beloved lighthouse, easily the island's most recognizable landmark, gives you an idea of the current situation.
Initial photos from our home are shocking, but I still believe we have been relatively lucky. Our main living area on the second level sustained only minor damage as far as I can tell. The ground level, where the water line was 55", is completely destroyed. We lost an exterior wall of the garage and some interior walls are gone, too.
A remediation crew is on the scene. We'll begin the drive down soon.
I'll check in again when I can...
